All riders must start within the official start. We have road closures set for specific times between the Start line and the base of the Big Dam Bridge. If you miss this road closure window you will not be allowed to start.

If your time isn’t listed, please contact us! If you chose not to have your rider number sticker on the back seat of your bike, your time was not recorded.
We are planning for remote timing points to accurately reflect each person's time for the distance they ride, not necessarily register. At the end of the day...this is not a race, this is a ride! We do not intend for times to reflect competition, but instead, personal reflection and goal-making.
Several reasons for the time differential are listed here.
Note: Our timing system records your time from the moment you cross the start line to the moment you cross the finish line. It does not pause (or adjust ) your time if you stop on the course.
Your recording unit has an auto stop / pause function enabled. If this is the case your unit will stop timing when you stop moving. IE: With this function on your computer enabled when you stop at an aid station the running clock on your unit will pause. Your unit was started prior to or potentially after crossing the starting line.
The United States government currently claims 95% Confidence Interval horizontal accuracy for civilian (SPS) GPS. Vertical accuracy is worse. This means that on a 100-mile route a civilian GPS unit could be off up to 5 miles. Most units are accurate, depending on tree cover, cloud cover, weather conditions and other factors well within this 5%. So it can be seen there could easily be variance between measurements for different units. The course distances were set using GPS so it could be off up to 5%. Compound that with the fact that your GPS unit could also be off by 5%. These variables may create the potential differentials between the distance recorded on your GPS unit or Cyclometer and the GPS unit we used to measure the course.
It is located in Riverfront Park which is adjacent to the Arkansas River. The entrance to this area is located at intersection of Riverfront Drive and Willow Streets in North Little Rock, AR, behind the Wyndham Hotel.
